Giving Thanks

With this weeks' CYDI challenge entitled "Giving Thanks", I was able to scrap a photo I took during last year's Thanksgiving dinner.  This is especially important to me as this year, I will be in Kazakhstan during Thanksgiving for my day job.  I will sorely miss gathering around the table as depicted in this layout.

You may recognize the papers I used, as they're the Fall for Realz collection that I've used before, from Green Goddess Creations at Can You Digi It?.  They're obviously very versatile -- so check them out!

You can participate in this challenge and win a $10 gift certificate to products from Can You Digi It?, so what have you got to lose?  We'd love to see your creations!!  Here's the link with all the info you need:  Can You Digi It Blog

Thanks for looking, and enjoy the season!

Halloween 2004

One of the frequent reasons I hear from people who are overwhelmed by the thought of scrapbooking is that they have so many photos and are already so behind...sound familiar?  It's true you may never scrap every photo you like or every memorable event you've photographed, but so what?  I've been meaning to scrap this photo of my son since it was taken...back in 2004!  I just never got around to it.  Well, I'm so glad I hung onto it, because this week's Design Team challenge over at Can You Digi It? was entitled Creepy & Kooky, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to finally scrap this beloved photograph.  I used the Haunted Papers and Brads by Green Goddess Creations, and I think they were just perfect for capturing the mood of the photograph!  Thanks for looking, and hope you find some time to scrap today!
